Daily Practice 115/365

Title: "Five second self-portrait"
(click to view larger)

Today was World Pinhole Photography Day, a day when photographers all over the world use pinhole cameras to make an image. My plan with this image was to make a double exposure of plant leaves with a grid from the brick walkway. My camera is a modified oscilloscope camera that takes instant pack film, and has no viewfinder. So I inadvertently took my self-portrait (trust me, my feet are as much as you'll ever see of this photo-averse person). It was one of those unexpected accidents that just seemed to make sense.
